Bracelet Sharing

Post by nowttolose »

Does the Super Compressor and Dartmouth share the same bracelet.

Reason I ask is I have a Super Compressor on a strap, and would like to add a Dartmouth to my collection at some point.

I figured that if they shared the same bracelet, I could buy one with the Dartmouth and also use if for my Super Compressor.

Does all the C65 with the same size head share the same bracelet? And does that then repeat for the C60 and C63 range.

Thanks in advance.
Dave

Not really. The end links are different. Same for the C65 Chrono. That has different end links too. It is true that the C65 Dartmouth shares a bracelet with the C65 GMT for example. I think it is also true with the C60s and C63s as long as they are the same lug width (20, or 22).

Top is C65/Dartmouth. Bottom is the SC.

2 More CW's on the short list! (This is pretty much a lie - I have at least 17 CW Tabs open at the moment!)

Thanks for the information and photo

Dang it. There goes my plan down the toilet.

I’d have thought they may have standardised the C65 bracelet end links like they have for the C60 of the same case size.

But, apparently not!

The Super Compressor has a cushion case design. I think the short stubby lugs are to accommodate the internal bezel. The chronos are just thicker.

The SC, C60 and the Dartmouth for comparison.

Can anyone verify this? It may push me into my second CW purchase

Keep in mind I was talking about the clasp and links at the bracelet. The end links are very different.

Does this mean that I wouldn’t be able to attach the 20mm C63 bracelet to a 20mm C60 watch?

I think that is correct. If you look there are models for both the C60 at 20mm and the C63 at 20mm indicating that the end links are different. Which would be consistent because the C60 case is 38 or 40 mm and the C63 is 39mm.
